Teabagging Good, Sex Bad


The latest yahoo elected in a Republican primary by the Tea Party movement is Christine O’Donnell, who’s apparently so far out there that even Karl Rove is criticizing her. And when you’re crazy enough that Rove doesn’t want to support you, you KNOW something is wrong. Apparently she lies a lot and is constantly in debt, but what’s also been noted a fair amount is her total opposition to anything sexual. She promotes abstinence-only education and opposes masturbation. Come on, masturbation is sex with someone you love! Unless you’re like me and don’t like yourself very much, but it’s still an activity done in private that isn’t affecting anyone but the person doing it. Mind you, I don’t think she’s actually lobbying to make masturbation ILLEGAL, but do we really need another politician with an unhealthy attitude toward sexuality? According to her Wikipedia profile, she became a sex-hating fundamentalist after a period in college of “drinking too much and having sex with guys with whom there wasn’t a strong emotional connection.” Apparently a middle way, like maybe having sex with guys with whom there WAS a strong emotional connection, or abstaining from sex herself without trying to force it on anyone else, wasn’t an option. It’s all or nothing with this one!

I’ve noticed that, whenever someone criticizes the Tea Party in general, supporters are quick to point out that the loonies don’t represent the vast majority of them. That makes me wonder why they’re the ones who keep getting elected with support from the Tea Party, and why nobody seems to raise any objections to the misspelled signs with racist messages and Hitler mustaches on the President.

Aren’t these people making them look bad? If I showed up at one of those rallies with a sign, say, advocating communism, would they ignore that as well, leading to the media reporting that the movement is actually communist? Mind you, I don’t think the stated objectives of the teabaggers make sense either. If you really want to reduce the deficit and restore the economy, why push for the government to stop collecting money from the only people who still have it? Oh, but we need the Bush tax cuts for job creation, right? While we’re at it, I hear the nation’s henhouses are failing, so maybe the government can subsidize some foxes to get them up and running again.

    Did you see “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report” last night? Jon Stewart pointed out that Christine O’Donnell (I thought Tea Partiers hated the Irish?) looks just like Sarah Palin in glasses and Stephen Colbert pointed out that the best way to avoid the adultery of masturbation is to marry your hand. Great stuff!

      I didn’t see them, but O’Donnell DOES look a lot like Palin. I think Palin loaned O’Donnell her image in addition to her support.

      O’Donnell actually grew up not too far from where I live now.

        Creepy. Oh, and Christine reminds me of Dr. Farnsworth in the robosexuality debate: “I can’t have a nice time who someone who loves me, so neither should you!” Will it ever be legal for ghosts to marry horses, I wonder? I can only hope that with time, it will.

        Just so long as it isn’t only male horses and female ghosts.
